Own a piece of the pond!

You are cordially invited to the CD release and art unveiling of “FULL MOON FROG POND” on Friday, November 26th at 6pm , as part of Vancouver’s Eastside Cultural Crawl at Deb Chaney’s studio, 1790 Vernon Drive.

Monday November 29, 2010, Vancouver, B.C., Canada - Vancouver sound artist Gregory Rosa and abstract painter Deb Chaney joined forces to create a CD and painting series—FULL MOON FROG POND—and will donate 10% of their proceeds to the Wilderness Committee, Canada’s largest membership-based, citizen-funded wilderness protection group.

The couple’s “Own A Piece of the Pond!” campaign is designed to raise money for the Committee by offering original artwork that complements the music, as a special limited edition for sale to art collectors. The couple will be having a CD release and art unveiling on Friday, November 26th at
Chaney’s studio, as part of Vancouver’s annual Eastside Culture Crawl.

Rosa layered the main track of the CD using a field recording he made of Pacific Tree Frogs at Jericho Park on a full moon springtime night. Inspired by the music, Chaney created an abstract mixed media acrylic triptych, based on the outline of the pond. Chaney then tore each panel into nine individual abstract pieces, and these 27 pieces are available to collectors with an accompanying CD. A high-quality, limited edition photographic reproduction of the triptych is also available, also with CD.

Gregory Rosa (né Molesky) is an emerging New Music sound artist who creates contemplative, deep listening works. He is also a writer-director, and currently has a project in development as part of Telefilm’s Feature Film Fund.

Deb Chaney is an emerging contemporary abstract artist who paints large layered mixed media
abstract paintings on canvas and paper. Her most recent body of work, “Pure Abstraction,” takes her art to a deeper level in expressing her deep passion for nature via the thick layering of mixed medias, sand, paper and acrylic paints.

The Wilderness Committee, founded in 1980, is a registered non-profit society with charitable status. With over 30,000 members from coast to coast to coast, and 40,000 additional donors and volunteers, they are Canada’s largest membership-based, citizen-funded wilderness protection group.
